for the potential spillovers from the crisis affecting the advanced economies. what can the imf do? well, we can help. we have refrained some of our instruments, effective credit line, for instance. the precautionary and liquidity credit lines which are both instruments aimed at comforting the country that is actually having the right set of policies in place, acts on tape as we say, in many countries have actually used those facilities, the case from mexico, the case for colombia, the case for polling, the case for morocco more recently with a precaution and liquidity lines. and together those not actually exceed the amount of commitment that we have for europe. okay, turning now to low income countries. they have performed relatively well through the crisis, and, frankly, when you look at numbers, starting from a low base admittedly of course, their numbers are generated in excess of any growth numbers we've seen in either advanced or emerging markets economies. but today they're more exposed to shifts in economic fortunes. i do not simply mean the potential fallout from the advanced economies

money to the imf, they send it to europe. is anybody in europe paying attention to the austerity measures? no. everyone keeps saying he did it. no one takes any blame for anything anymore, including here at home. we keep bailing our own selves out. it has to stop or no one is going to fix anything. why should you when you just expect the check is coming in the mail. >> should we be bailing out europe, in fact, because what happens over there keeps killing our markets here. it's been nothing but problems for two years. >> the problem with europe started by greece, they lied about their debt, they never had that 3% level you're supposed to have to get in the e.u. so they don't have anything to go back to. and right now angela merkel is trying to bail out her own banks through this huge imf bailout. the same thing that happened to aig. once you stuck money in it, it went to banks. that's what they're doing. back door bailout for banks. you've got to let these countries start dealing with it themselves. there is no hope. i don't believe, in my opinion, for greece and probably a coupl

for the official sector holders, new money come either from the multilateral community such as the imf for individual creditors. i know you will not comment on negotiations currently under way, but i'm wondering if you could provide perspectives on how to think about that combination of solution or are there other potential components that are being menaced by the debate at the moment because there is a lot of concern and people go running off in one direction or another. if you can provide perspective on how you think about the passage of potential solutions that one could consider as promoting stability in the financial system. >> i think you are knowledgeable. clearly if much of comments. i'm not going to throw into the intricacies of how much more, how much less. it is important to keep in mind two things that i know which country you're referring to. the fiscal gap, the structural reforms, the financing of the programs, but also the sustainability of the country going forward so it can walk want premise to see that not always with a huge backup data on its back. it's a whole combi

it mean an imf program are not an imf program? will it be ratified and active in providing direct support to the banking system in a country like spain? although the attention has been on the european central bank and what it might not do, the preconditions are the critical issue. the quality of the program, the ability to provide direct support to banks. >> what about the scenario is bought -- with deposits in spain? >> it is sort of an important issue that if it continues will be something that can drive this. i think the point that john made are right and one thing he did not mention was we have that european banking unit coming at. essentially, if they can construct this banking union, that would allow you to do deposit insurance, those things are fundamentally uncertain. there is an awful lot of moving pieces here that have to go forward. i would come back to the notion and the sense of what has changed over the last month. to me, the biggest change is the attitude -- >> the question you have to ask yourself is what is that euro about? is a social decision or an economic decision? if

next month. the i.m.f.'s currently forecast calls for growth of 3.5% this year, and 3.9% next. erika miller reports. >> reporter: global economic growth appears to be hitting a wall. a "bric" wall that is. there's growing evidence that economic growth is slowing in virtually every part of the globe, even the world's fastest growing economies. the term "bric" was coined a decade ago to refer to brazil, russia, india and china. but if you were to rank the countries by economic importance, the order would be reversed. >> china's been the engine of global growth a very, very long time. and, now because of its deceleration, it's becoming the drag on global growth, if you will. and that's part of the maturation process. >> reporter: but, for now, at least, it doesn't look like the chinese economy is headed for a hard landing. in 2010, china's growth was over 10%. last year it was 9.2%. this year, the i.m.f. expects it to fall to 8%. but that's still a lot better than what's expected in the u.s. next year. >> i'm predicting 2% to 2.5% g.d.p. growth, nothing wild. probably a bit lower than t

be involving the conditionality and would be involving the imf. so, i think we have a lot more clarity here. i think there were other points as well that were very useful, that emerged out of yesterday's press conference. in particular, the idea that ireland and portugal could actually be part of the ecb purchasing, and that would definitely assist their way of getting back to market access. that's an important issue for the financial markets. i think as well it was fairly clear that the governing counsel was not trying to get some form of seniority for this new purchase program. that, again, is very important because i think investors have been very concerned that ultimately the ecb might find it difficult to avoid being seen to be in some form of senior status for the purchases it makes. so, i think the level of commitment, the general tone of the press conference, always very important. now, concerning the specific point about what the esfs and esm actually do, and what happens next, that is still uncertain, frankly. a lot really is going to hinge upon what spain is going to be asking for h
